How proven is HireBox?

Patrick Valtin has evaluated over 25,000 applicants using this testing technology.

How is it proven, well the best way is to do the test yourself or on a fellow colleague and see the precise test results yourself during the two week free trial of the platforms.

Generally the precision of the test is over 90%..

How was the HireBox testing platform developed?

Patrick Valtin originally created the Recru-Tec Test in 1995, after having dealt with personnel and applicant assessment for 8 years. After 4 different versions and 25,000 evaluations completed in the next 23 years, the HireBox testing platform was recently fully redesigned with the help of Jean-Marie Surinx (programming) and Steve Valtin (design) to comply with the new international web technologies. Additional assessments were added to respond to our clients’ requests and the needs of internet-based pre-selection methodologies.

How will I be able to understand the test results?

Our HireBox platform gives you details about each evaluated trait, and even indicates when there is a syndrome (a conflict of two or more traits).

There is also a full course available for you, so you can become trained and a pro at evaluating these tests yourself.

We also offer video evaluations. You can order this on a certain test, and we will have one of our expert evaluators send you a screen recording explaining his/her findings on the selected test.

What is the difference between the Pre-Selector and the Recru-Tec test?

The difference is that the Pre-Selector is a very fast, easy-to-fill tool that you want to use on applicants who qualify because of their resume, and you are interested to invite them for a first interview. When you get the Pre-Selector test results, you can use them to challenge the candidate during the 1st interview.

The Recru-Tec test is a very deep, precise personality analysis which evaluates if the applicant has the right personality traits for the position. We usually recommend that you ask applicants who have passed the first interview, to fill the Recru-Tec test. In other words, we do NOT recommend that you use the Recru-Tect test on applicants who did not pass the 1st interview. When you get the test results, you can use them to challenge the candidate during the second interview.

What is the precision of your assessments?

Our assessments are extremely precise – above 90%. More than 25,000 Recru-tec tests have been delivered in the last 23 years throughout the world. How do we evaluate its precision? The assessment is usually “tested” by our clients prior to having them use the system for their hiring/evaluation purposes. The best way to test our assessments, is to have it completed by 3 to 5 people who you know very well. This is how the vast majority of our clients have become loyal clients.

Reliability is the level of dependability and consistency in measuring a characteristic. If a person takes the test again, will he/she get similar test score, or a much different one? Our clients regularly monitor the Recru-Tec test “Reliability Coefficient Value”, which approximates 0.92. Validity reflects the correctness of a test in measuring characteristics – in our case, related to job performance. How well does it measure what it says it measures? If it scores high on validity, it means that one can trust the test prediction about job performance. Again, constant monitoring reflects a validity rate of above 90%.

What is your cancel policy?

You can cancel your subscription at any time – during or after the free trial period.

Monthly subscriptions are effectively cancelled at the end of the current period.

Yearly subscriptions are cancelled at the end of the current monthly period.

Which Pre-Hire assessment should use?

The Pre-Selector is ideally used before the first interview, in order to give you information for you to challenge the candidate during the first interview.

The Recru-Tec test would be used before inviting the candidate for a second interview, the test result should then be used to challenge the candidate during the second interview.

Will my credit card be debited during the trial period?

No, your credit card will be debited at the end of the trial period ONLY if you decide to continue with the HireBox platform.

If you do not wish to continue during or at the end of the trial period, simply cancel your subscription at any time by clicking on “Request Support” on the home page of the platform. Your credit card information will automatically be discarded when we cancel your subscription.
